2nd show of final Brent tour
Hornsby was on this tour and opened for this show (he played a set with them days later, and of course was IN the band months later). They would play the "Freedom Hall" (what, as opposed to Slavery Hall?) arena next door, instead, in '93 (as in '74, '89). I remember almost going to this one and then we decided it was too far, too humid (even coming from the better Kansas City show), too stadium; too bad! An average '90 show but with a nearly 2hr second set.
First Set. Average but consistent stuff - no true highlights but no wavering either. Sugaree has the most sparks of the set and show. Desolation Row is tedious, as it had become. Arguably, lyrics-based songs didn't serve their strengths in '90. Dylan was a huge influence on the boys, and I'm sure Bobby loves the song, but if you didn't know the Dylan versions it was interminable and indiscernible much of the time. Is this a good version? Who freaking knows?! It's 4½min before Jer gets to play and then that's followed by another dozen (or so) verses-sans-melody; even Dylan's original is not a highpoint of Highway 61 Revisited (though to be fair, they did do 5 other songs from that album). Likewise, deciding which are good versions of Picasso Moon hinges on whether "Drive-in movie-ooo-eee" is yr idea of lyrical excellence. The arrangement caused stumbling: they needed to all come down on the start of certain measures, but rarely seemed to agree where those one-beats were. As a result it was perennially a "song they're still working on". Agree on the measures, practice, or drop it, 'cause beats with a time-change won't come together on the stage (and they got together and worked it out on Estimated, for example). End rant.
Second Set. Average set, though Standing on the Moon is funereal & creaky (the last minute's okay). A section of the set was used for View from the Vault (View I, not II, as listed) where it became known as KY Jam (which is just ever-so-slightly thicker than KY Jelly, as it includes the pulp and not just the juices). Though the He's Gone lead-in is nothing special, the Jam is one of the better explorations of the tour. If you like your 90s jammies, these are jammies with feet. Truckin' is shoes-in-the-dryer and then out of tune. Around & Around has a nifty Phil jazz sequence @4min.
1st Set: C 2nd Set: C
Overall = 2¼ stars
Sugaree - maybe
SOURCES: The zei_2255 plays at the wrong pitch. The fishman_9009 is best, and then the Miller_12770 (needed for the GDtRFB, which has a minute cut from the fishman; and for the Baby Blue, which is AUD on fishman).
